We always love to hear the stories of how our couples met, and Jordan and Andy’s is such a sweet one! Jordan used to babysit for Andy’s nephew, Ethan. Over time, Jordan’s mom and Ethan’s mom (Andy’s sister-in-law, Amy), started conspiring to have Jordan and Andy meet. Once they did, the rest was history! Since they never would have met if it weren’t for Ethan, Ethan was a huge part of their wedding day, as well. Doesn’t he make one of the cutest little ring bearers you’ve ever seen??
Jordan and Andy decided to hold their ceremony in the beautiful Tea Garden at the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg, Florida. Jordan got ready in a beautiful suite overlooking the Tea Garden before coming downstairs to meet Andy for their first look. (I think we caught her giving Andy bunny ears in a few shots!) After sharing some private moments together, we were able to take our time creating their portraits as well as getting all of the bridal party and family photos done before their Ketubah signing ceremony.
After their main ceremony we took just a few more portraits then we were off to the Sunset Ballroom for their rockin’ reception! It was SO MUCH FUN! Everyone partied and danced late into the night, and Carolina managed to get one especially fun shot of a breakdancing guest…it’s all about being in the right place at the right time! (And being ready for the “moment!”)
It made sense to close our post with a little note from Ethan, the one person who we could say is responsible for it all! What a cutie! HUGE congrats to you, Jordan and Andy!! We hope you’re having a killer time on your honeymoon in Barbados and we feel so lucky to have met you!!
